We can help you design participatory and self organising events of any scale and think through the logistics of venue, structure and resourcing.
We use a range of models and approaches to increase awareness and inform thinking, planning and decision making including Three Horizons, Appreciative Inquiry, Action Learning, Systems Thinking, Co-Design and Process Mapping.
We bring skill and creativity to the facilitation of different kinds of meetings and events, which guarantee a rich ‘harvest’ of thoughts, ideas and insights to inform your project, change programme or development process.
We welcome the opportunity of working with groups who offer divergent views and multiple perspectives, no matter how challenging, in order to get to a place of mutual interest and respect.
We believe that respecting diversity and harnessing the power of the collective is key to organisational effectiveness and the development of dynamic and cohesive community networks and stakeholder groups.
We know that culture determines the health and success of all organisations.
We welcome the challenge of supporting staff and stakeholders through change while protecting and strengthening the health and well being of all.
Makeshifts takes a ‘systems‘ view of organisational change and development, emphasising the value of dialogue, engagement, collaborative leadership and inquiry to set free the collective capacity of the organisation to learn, contribute, innovate and problem solve improve, leading to improved outcomes for all.
We specialise in changing the culture by changing the conversation.
What is the shift you are trying to make? Where in the system is change most needed?
What is your vision for change? And who needs to be in the conversation?
If you are open to new ways of thinking, connecting, consulting and working with others to achieve better outcomes, we would love to work with you to develop your capacity to meet the emerging future with confidence, energy and excitement.
